QCC 2007 Futurity (7), 17.08.2007
White’s king finds that he has no place to hide from Black’s heavy pieces streaming down the central files. 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 4.Bc4 Bg7 5.Qe2 Nc6 6.Nf3 Bg4 7.Be3 e5 8.Bb5 Nd7 9.d5 Nd4 10.Bxd4 exd4 11.Nd1 0- 0 12.Bxd7 Qxd7 13.h3 Bxf3 14.gxf3 c6 15.dxc6 bxc6 16.Qd3 d5 17.c3 Rfe8 18.cxd4 dxe4 19.fxe4 Bxd4 20.Ne3 Rad8 21.Rd1 Qb7 22.b3 c5 23.f3 Qc7 24.Ke2 f5 25.Qc4+ Kh8 26.Nc2 Qg3 27.Nxd4 Qg2+ 28.Ke3 cxd4+ 29.Kd3 fxe4+ 30.fxe4 Qxe4+

[Lawson,Brian]

Black gets into trouble in the opening and has to castle by hand. Just as he fights his way back, White swaps into an endgame and wins a pawn. 1.e4 c5 2.d4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.c3 d5 5.exd5 exd5 6.Bb5+ Bd7 7.Bxd7+ Nxd7 8.dxc5 Nxc5 9.0-0 Be7 10.Re1 Nf6 11.Qe2 Kf8 12.Nd4 Qd7 13.Bf4 Re8 14.Qc2 Qg4 15.Bg3 g6 16.Nd2 Kg7 17.Re2 Qd7 18.Rae1 Bd6 19.Bxd6 Qxd6 20.f3 Rxe2 21.Rxe2 Ne6 22.N2b3 h5 23.Qd2 Re8 24.Qe1 a6 25.Re3 b5 26.Qd2 Qf4 27.g3 Qd6 28.Qf2 Ng5 29.Kg2 Qd7 30.Rxe8 Nxe8 31.Qe3 Ne6 32.Nxe6+ Qxe6 33.Kf2 Nd6 [33…Nc7 would at least prevent losing a pawn.] 34.Qxe6 fxe6 35.Nc5 Kf6 36.Nxa6 Nc4 37.b3 Nd6 38.Nb4 g5 39.Ke3 Nf5+ 40.Kd3 Ke5? This allows a transposition to a winning K&P endgame. 41.Nc6+ Kd6 42.Nd4 Nxd4 43.Kxd4 e5+ 44.Kd3 Kc5 45.a3 Kc6 46.Ke3 Kc5 47.f4 gxf4+ 48.gxf4 exf4+ 49.Kxf4 d4 50.cxd4+ Kxd4 51.a4 The outside passed pawn decides the game. 51…bxa4 52.bxa4 Kc4 53.Kg5 Kb4 54.Kxh5 Kxa4 55.Kg6 Kb5 56.h4 Kc6 57.h5 Kd6 58.h6 Ke7 59.Kg7 Ke6 60.h7 Kf5 61.h8Q Kg4 1-0

(24) Murphy,Richard − Lawson,Brian [B24]

QCC 2007 Futurity (7), 17.08.2007

1.Nc3 g6 2.e4 Bg7 3.g3 c5 4.Bg2 Nc6 5.Nge2 d6 6.0-0 e5 7.Nd5 Nge7 8.c3 0-0 9.d3 Nxd5 10.exd5 Ne7 11.d4? cxd4 12.cxd4 Qb6 13.dxe5 Bxe5 14.Qb3 Qxb3 15.axb3 a6 16.Nc3 Bf5 17.Bd2 This seems a little passive. 17…Bc2 18.b4 Nf5 19.Ra3 Nd4 20.Be3 Bf5 21.Bxd4 Bxd4 22.Rfa1 Rac8 23.Bf1 Otherwise 23…Rc4. 23…Rfe8 24.b5 axb5 25.Bxb5 Re5 26.Ra8 Rxa8 27.Rxa8+ Kg7 28.Bc4 Bh3 29.Ra1 Rf5 30.Ne4 Bxb2 31.Rb1 Bd4 32.Rd1 Ba7 33.Ra1 b5 34.Bxb5 Rxd5 The threat of mate keeps Black’s Bishop from being taken. 35.Bf1 Bxf1 36.Kxf1 Bc5 37.Ra6 h6 38.Ke2 f5 39.Nc3 Re5+ 40.Kd3 Bxf2 41.Rxd6 Bg1 42.Nd5 Rxd5+ This move saves Black from having to analyze all those perpetual check threats with the Rook and Knight. 43.Rxd5 Bxh2 44.Ke3 Bxg3 45.Kf3 Bb8 46.Rb5 Bd6 47.Rd5 Be7 48.Rd7 Kf6 49.Rb7 h5 50.Rb6+ Kg5 51.Rb7 Bf6 52.Rb1 h4 53.Rb6 Be5 54.Rb5 Bg3 55.Rd5 Kf6 56.Ra5 g5 57.Ra6+ Kg7 58.Rb6 g4+ 59.Kg2 Be5 60.Rb5 Kf6 61.Rb6+ Kg5 62.Rb4 h3+ 63.Kh1 Bg3 64.Rb5 Bf2 65.Kh2 Kh4 66.Rb4 f4 67.Kh1 [67.Rxf4 Bg3+]

67…Be3 68.Rb8 f3 69.Rh8+ Kg5 [69…Kg3 70.Rxh3+ which should still win for Black but, at this time, everything looked like a stalemate position.] 70.Rg8+ Kf4 71.Rf8+ Kg3 72.Rh8 Bd2 [72…f2 73.Rxh3+ Kf4 is a more direct win for Black.] 73.Rd8 Be1 [73…f2 is, again, better.] 74.Rh8 Kf2 75.Ra8 g3 76.Ra2+ Kf1 One last stalemate try is 77.Rf2+ when Black has to remember to take with the pawn. 0-1

(23) Ryba,Nicholas − Drobbin,Mitchell [A03]

QCC 2007 Futurity (7), 17.08.2007
1.f4 d5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.g3 Bg4 4.Bg2 Bxf3 5.exf3 [I am not sure what was wrong with 5.Bxf3 ] 5…e6 6.d4 h5 7.h4 Nge7 8.Bh3 g6 9.c3 Nf5 10.Bxf5 gxf5 White has spent a few tempi to trade off his better Bishop. Black’s pressure on the g−file forces White to castle to the weakened Queenside.

31.Rb1 [131.Kf2 Bxc3 32.Qa2]

11.Be3 Rg8 12.Bf2 Bd6 13.Nd2 Qd7 14.Qe2 0-0-0 15.0-0-0 Na5 16.b4 Qa4? 17.bxa5 Qxa2 18.Rde1 Ba3+ 19.Kd1 Qa1+ 20.Kc2 Qb2+ 21.Kd3 Qb5+ 22.Ke3 Qxa5 23.Qd3 [123.Ra1 Qxc3+ 24.Qd3 Bb4 25.Rxa7] 23...Bb2 24.Nb1 Rd6 25.Re2 Qa1 26.Qc2 Rb6 27.Rd1 Rd8 28.Be1 Rdd6 29.Nd2 Qa3 30.Nf1 Rdc6 

0-1
